Bitter Bitter Bitter

Maybe I'm just tired. But here's what I think:

If you hang a huge sign outside your store, advertising 70% off, you should expect that shoppers will be looking for the sale merchandise.

And if, in fact, you've only put on sale two small racks of crammed-together stuff in a tiny closet in the back, then you fail to provide any signage, then your employees choose not to greet any customers (including those who wander the store for half an hour looking for a gift)...

Get ready for me to be annoyed with you.

I love cute boutiques. I love local stores. But really? I felt like I was unwelcome, and like your sign was a sham. You know who you are, at the corner of 9th and 9th.
